    I was cruising the net as I am interested in buying a new bass and I came across the Lemur Flyaway Bass that comes apart and fits into a box for transport. Has anyone had any experience with this bass? I am in Australia and its portability is attractive but only if it sounds and plays well. I'd be grateful for any information.
    Cheers,

    In addition to the Lemur, other options include a removable neck model from Upton Bass, the Chadwick Folding Bass, the Cossi 99in as well as luthiers who can convert a bass for you.

    For transport, I saw a cool carbon-fibre case that has a separate case for the neck that can attach to the main case, but it's quite expensive. David Gage also has one that is very similar, which Upton also sells.

    I bought the Liberty Bell Flyaway Bass from Lemur. Hybrid Carved top with a flatback.
    I feels really good. The G,D,A strings are nice. But the E string, low end is really bad.
    Took it to a luthier 3x, they found that the bass bar has a bad shape to it.
    I dont want to invest any more money into this bass.
    Had higher expectations. Just Disappointed.
